The Library Resource Centre is an integral part of the teaching and learning program of the School.
Its purpose is to enhance teaching and student learning by providing opportunities for students to develop information-accessing skills and to use these skills competently and confidently to gain knowledge.
We have an online borrowing system called Accessit that gives students access to over 40000 books. With such a vast selection of several genres, fiction and non-fiction, students will always find something of interest and quench their thirst for knowledge. It’s particularly useful in finding books at the students’ reading level. After reading a book, the teacher can request them to take a quiz about it on the Renaissance website.
The Library is open for all students during recess and lunchtime and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Homework Club. Homework Club is a free service provided to give students the opportunity to have some tutoring after school hours to assist them with their homework. This is not compulsory, nor does it need to be booked. To access or browse the Library Click Here!
Students in years 11 and 12 are able to choose to undergo a specialised subject not offered at Prescott College. This is called an Open Access subject, which is undertaken online at Prescott College, with a teacher from Open Access. The Librarian coordinates this process with the student. There is an additional cost to the regular school fees for the students to take an Open Access subject.
